Movies

Was at the cinemas yesterday, and as i saw the throng of people lining up to buy tickets, the googly mass in front of the popcorn counter, and the many other milling around waiting for their movie to start, i wondered why we were all there.

The obvious answer, to watch a movie.

The not-so-obvious, to escape the real world?

To laugh at the antic of imaginary characters on the screen, to cry with them, to feel their pain when they bled or fell from great heights, to fear, to be held in great suspense — just a few moments of our lives when we can be somewhere else besides where we really are.

Its golden.
